I don't do dangerous. Smart, über-careful, ordinary Samantha-that's me. But I just couldn't pass up a surprise kiss from my number-one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me...something strange. Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It's like part of me is missing-and I don't know if I can get it back. Then there's Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he's keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he's what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me. But something terrifying is closing in, and the one chance Bishop and I have to stop it means losing everything I ever wanted and embracing the darkness inside me.... NIGHTWATCHERS When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising... (Goodreads)
After a kiss with her long-time crush, Samantha’s life is completely changed forever. The kiss turned her into something that she didn’t even know existed. Now it’s up to Samantha to work with Bishop and Kraven, who are both angel and demon sent from above, to stop the terrible destruction of earth by people just like her.
The characters in the story were very interesting, and each for their own reason. Samantha definitely seemed to be determined young lady. I love that she had a snarky quality to her when she was nervous, and I found it easy to relate to her because of this. Bishop was quite a mystery to me, and kept me guessing throughout the book. Kraven was also a snarky character, and I really enjoyed the chemistry between him and Samantha. The secondary characters were interesting as well, and I really wanted to know more about them.
The storyline for the book was very intriguing. I’ve read quite a few angel/demon books lately, and this book definitely stood out from the others. The book was also well paced. The ending was a little bit of a cliffhanger, but it also closed up nicely. I am, however, looking forward to seeing where the story goes in the next book. I also want to add that the cover for the book is pretty gorgeous!
Overall, I really enjoyed this book! I went in not really knowing what to expect, but ended up enjoying the story and the characters. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book, Wicked Kiss, due in 2013!
